🐠 🐟 Share your amazing hotel stories . I miss business travel … last time I met a client face to face was in Feb 2020. My most amazing hotel stay was in Toronto June 2018… checked into a Westin hotel and I was upgraded to a presidential suite ! I couldn’t believe it until I went to my room .

Marriott Grand Marquis in midtown ATL. Hotel was being renovated and my first room was filled with paint fumes. Got moved, same problem. Called the wife and was like, "baby, I need you to work your magic." She called me back 5 min later and said "they'll be up to collect you and your bags momentarily." Bellhop showed up and took me to a Governor's suite. Double french door entrance, 6 person dining room, living space with sofa and chairs, a bar, 1.5 bathrooms.
Funniest part was that the bed was a fold-away so at night I would pull down the bed and then sleep in the utterly cavernous room.
